It's been another great week for the Dreamers! In our writing lessons we have been looking at setting descriptions and using different word types (adjectives, nouns and verbs). We've focused on sentence structure, making sure we're including our capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. As a class we compared a Haunted Castle and a Princess Castle... surprise, surprise... the Haunted Castle came out on top!! Finding out about the different roles that people have in a castle is very interesting! In maths we've taken our knowledge of place value and applied it to count in 2s, 5s and 10's, and to order numbers. Our class is full of great mathematicians!

The children are settling in nicely to their second week and new routine at school. We have really enjoyed our brain breaks where we’ve been running the golden mile. It has really brought out our competitive sides, and got our hearts racing! Our coats of arms are taking shape and we have thought carefully about the colours and animals we are using as they have different meanings. It seems we have lots of brave Lions in year 2! In science we’ve been looking at different materials and we are hoping to use our scientific knowledge to succeed in castle building.

What an amazing start to year 2! We have loved hearing about all the exciting things the children have been getting up to over the holidays; it sounds like they've had lots fun!  In Maths we have been learning all about place value and how to separate a number into tens and ones. The children have really embraced this learning, and even though it was a tough start they have shown admirable resilience which shows through their success. Writing has been really interesting! We watched a fascinating video all about dragons, then spent time discussing what we saw in the video and writing a character description. We got some wonderful pieces of writing!
